I always clean up before up I leave the lounge, but cleaning up the entire lounge is a bit much...
...then again, this is an Irish airport we're talking about...
I wonder if he's available to clean up the local Red Carpet Club, which is quite messy after dozens of half-drunk businessmen leaves....

DUBLIN (Reuters) - Multi-faceted screen star Jeremy Irons has revealed shining new talents after cleaning up a scruffy Irish airport lounge during a flight delay, newspapers have reported.
Upset by the sight of beer-soaked tables and overflowing ashtrays in a lounge at Shannon airport in southwestern Ireland, the Oscar-winning star grabbed a cleaner's trolley and cloth and started mopping up the mess, much to the surprise of fellow passengers.
"I had done enough reading and I looked around me and the place was a tip so I decided to clean up," Irons was quoted as saying in the tabloid Irish Daily Mirror newspaper on Thursday.
"I find being diverted at airports quite depressing and I felt much better after cleaning up."
Irons, who shot to fame 21 years ago opposite Meryl Streep in "The French Lieutenant's Woman", is renowned for his versatility as an actor and suave on-screen presence.
He was en route to his castle in Cork, southern Ireland, when his plane was diverted to Shannon.
